Overview

LifeStation offers extremely affordable emergency alert systems with both in home and GPS enabled systems available as well as fall detection services. Users who need help simply push a button to alert the monitoring center, and they will send help. The basic in-home plan starts at a low price of $19.95 per month. Additional features like mobile alerts, fall detection, and hallway buttons cost extra. The company has over 800 reviews on Trustpilot and maintains a solid rating of 8.4.

 

 

Cost

Compared to other emergency alert systems, LifeStation has slightly lower prices for the basic system, making this a great deal for those looking to save a few bucks. However, the most basic plan which costs $19.95 annually does lack some key features such as fall detection and a protection plan. The protection plan is included in the Select plan which costs $24.95 a month and both protection plan and fall detection come with the Supreme plan which costs $34.95 monthly. 

All in-home systems come with small lightweight pendants and have extended battery life which lasts up to 3 days without a charge. If you don't have a landline, the system will require it's own communication system and thus the price of all the above plans will be increased slightly.

When it comes to LifeStation's mobile plans pricing ranges from $29.95 a month to $39.95 a month. Note that the Standard $29.95 plan does not include an activation fee, and similar to the in-home systems, does not include a protection plan or fall detection.

 

 

Contract

Similar to other medical alert systems, LifeStation gives customers the option to choose between different pricing payment options. LifeStation doesn’t require any long term contracts and has the option of annual, quarterly, and monthly plans.

 

 

Equipment

LifeStation equipment offers an easy to use system in which users can get help with the simple press of a button. LifeStation offers both in home and GPS enabled emergency alert systems with fall detection as an optional add-on.

Their most popular system is the In Home Traditional plan which works with a telephone line to get help with the push of a button. Those without a traditional landline still have options for setting up an in-home alert system at an added cost.

More active seniors can purchase the GPS enabled mobile alert system. LifeStation has one of the more innovative mobile medical alerts on the market as it comes with enhanced GPS & WiFi location services and even works with Amazon Alexa.
